Science fiction and fantasy specialist Del Rey Books is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and to celebrate, the imprint is reissuing paperbacks of classic titles featuring smashing new cover art. We’re pleased to debut the first three right here on io9.

Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?—due for a big resurgence this year thanks to the upcoming Blade Runner sequel—will be the first release; you can pick this up January 17. (For reference, here’s the older version.)

Next up is Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, available April 18. (Older version here.)

Finally, this version of Dam Simmons’ Hyperion will be available starting August 15. (Old version!)

Del Rey will also be giving the snazzy-new-cover treatment to some of groundbreaking author Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern fantasy books later this year. Stay tuned for even more titles as they’re announced.
